Webinar: COVID-19 and Climate Change – Lessons Learned

 

Wednesday, June 10, 2020, 12:00PM - 1:00PM

     

The coronavirus outbreak has deeply impacted our world. Its great effects on health, businesses and society as a whole is unprecedented. However, it’s important for us to take a closer look at its relations with climate change, especially how the measures taken to mitigate the crisis seem to have positive consequences on the environment.

Lockdowns, social distancing and isolation mean fewer cars and buses on the streets and many industries have slowed down or stopped their production altogether. We believe there are many lessons to be learned from this scenario. Governments around the globe took drastic measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus and they seem to be working.

Climate change is just as an urgent question as this pandemic is. Maybe, for climate change, we also need to try to “flatten the curve.” Will the efforts to rebuild a global economy increase pollution and gas emissions when the pandemic is over?  

Join us on June 10, 12 p.m. (EST)/1 p.m. (BRT) to discuss this and more!
